    I've heard that rumor, but never been able to verify it. Do you remember where you heard it?

    Cooperstown Bat Company h

    I know the Cooperstown Bat Company were forced to stop manufacturing there MLB team bats due to the high cost of paying "fees", making the bats too expensive to purchase by most customers. I only have a few and wish I had one bat for every team............

    Oh, ok Well they where actually the nationals anyways when they where the senators for a while at least. Thats weird so they could be the expansion senators but not the original senators that the Twins became dosen't matter same name.

So I think the all get their cut, the Orioles might get a cut they do keep the rights to the name, like there can't be an expansion team in St Louis called the browns without primission from the Orioles. So they might get some money. Is'nt that why the Nationals arn't named the Senators?

    A more general question:

    Since when is merchandise a part of the clubs' revenues?

    I can imagine that it did not play a part before the sixties.

    Does anybody know?

    It was a bar in Brooklyn, the bar won the lawsuit since it was tried in a court in Brooklyn. Apparently it goes by another name now.

    Browns' merchandising rights

    You can allways sell bootleg St. Louis Browns merchandise and see who sues you..

    Seems teams are usually allowed to keep their history when they move, I would think the Orioles own the name. But I could be wrong. I remember hearing about the LA Dodgers suing a guy in Brooklyn for using the Brooklyn Dodgers name, his defence was that since they moved to LA, they don't have a claim on the name Brooklyn Dodgers anymore. I never did hear the outcome of that law suit.

    started a topic Browns' merchandise monies

    Browns' merchandise monies

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know where the money from Browns' merchandise (hats, jerseys, etc.) goes these days? I assume if it is "Cooperstown Collection," the hall of fame is making money off the deal or MLB. Do the Orioles get any of the money?
